Netflix Releases this April

March has come and gone and April brings a new round of shows to Netflix. April doesn’t have the greatest assortment of additions, but since Netflix released “House of Cards” in February and “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” in March, who can really complain?

Fans of the Netflix original “Derek,” starring and directed by Ricky Gervais, will be glad to know the newest season will be available on Netflix starting April 3. The final season of “Wilfred,” the FX series that ended this past year, hits Netflix April 7 so fans can finish off the series.

Fans of “Wet Hot American Summer” (arguably one of the funniest films of the 21st century) can check out “They Came Together.” The spoof romantic comedy stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and is produced by Michael Showalter, the mastermind behind “Wet Hot American Summer.” It has that nonsensical humor that made “Wet Hot American Summer” great but doesn’t live up to the same standards, if you asked me.

Most notably, the newest Netflix original series “Marvel’s Daredevil” premieres with its first full season on April 10 and is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Matt Murdock (Daredevil) is a lawyer-by-day who fights crime by night and is the first in a series of shows that will lead up to a Defenders crossover miniseries.

Below is the full list of additions to Netflix this April and the expected dates of availability.
